Pastor Speaks Frankly About Trayvon Martin To Blacks

"On some positions, cowardice asks the question, is it expedient? And expedience comes along and asks the question, is it political? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? Conscience asks the question, is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor polite, nor popular--- but one must take it because it's right," said Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr.

Yesterday I posted the video of Pastor Jesse Lee Peterson who stood his ground against Piers Morgan in citing Trayvon Martin's troubled past. Today I ran across an article by Pastor Ken Hutcherson. Hutcherson is the pastor of Antioch Baptist Church in Redmond, Washington. He puts out a call to those in the "black community," that he says is "neither safe, nor polite, nor popular," but he "believe(s) is right."

"Blackness seems to be defined as a belief that in the black community you cannot be lied to by our so-called self-imposed leaders and the news media," Hutcherson wrote. "If either one of them says something, we put all our trust in it as the truth, and we act upon that truth regardless of the repercussions. Truth can stand regardless if anyone believes in it or not, but a lie cannot stand unless someone has faith in it."

Hutcherson says that he agrees with Dr. James Manning's sentiments surrounding George Zimmerman and the Martin case, which you can see in the video below:

"I believe Dr. James Manning hit it on the head when he said that black people have a difficult time accepting truth simply because they are black. That's right, black people are involved and it is impossible for the average black person to believe the truth," wrote Hutcherson. "They refuse to believe that a black boy could be in the wrong when it comes to a white Hispanic. Blackness is the apex of victimhood and our blackness is above truth, above our Christianity, above our God, above our Holy Spirit, so that means if our blackness is above the Holy Spirit, then it is above Truth. This is so important for everyone to know this so they can understand why this Trayvon and Zimmerman case is where it is today and why blacks refuse to believe what really happened."

While Hutcherson went on to speculate about the encounter that fateful might in February 2012 between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin, no one can be completely certain except the two men and God.

However, he did cite Rachael Jeantel, the prosecution star witness (and I would say she was the star for the defense as well). "On The Piers Morgan Show, Rachael Jeantel said that Trayvon attacked George first because that is what you do in the hood."

He said that "black people will not accept that because their leaders and the media said it was a racially motivated confrontation. They are living black and just can't help themselves."

Sadly, I know some brothers in the Church that respond this way too.

Hutcherson demonstrated his point by recalling his days in college when he challenged a white professor over the big bang theory and in doing so, she brought it all down to race, which by the way is a complete myth. We are all the same color, just different shades as we are all from the same parents, Adam and Eve. Furthermore, the only real racial divide is among those who are still in the first Adam and those who are in the second Adam (Jesus Christ).

"It seems that being black allows us to not look at the truth even when it is screaming in our face because we just can't help ourselves," Pastor Hutcherson wrote. "It is hard to believe that blacks can be guilty of wrongdoing in our society. You know when you look at the truth of blacks making up 30 percent of the population and yet the majority of those incarcerated are black men and women. Can someone please tell me if it is not true that in Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, and New York that blacks are killing blacks, you know, black on black crime? In those cities blacks perpetrate serious crimes with guns over 70 per cent of the time. Now don't miss that comparison of 30 percent of the population committing over 70 percent of all crimes in our largest cities. There are many blacks who think whitey wants to get rid of us and the way we are killing each other the only thing they have to do is get out of the way and we will accomplish that ourselves. Then it does seem logical that most of the people that are in jail would be black."

Hutcherson makes an excellent point and one that the media and the race baiters like Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson seem to be content in remaining silent on and that is black on black violence.

The sad part is in the church of Jesus Christ, professed "Christians" are falling into the evolutionary idea of race and as such treat brothers and sisters as though they inferior to themselves merely because of skin pigmentation. Sounds vaguely reminiscient of Dr. Seuss' tale about the sneetches, doesn't it? (If you haven't seen that, it is most relevant, so here's the video)

Concluding, Dr. Hutherson says, "No one is innocent of this racial divide if we don't do something to promote change. I am not talking about more talking; I am talking about doing….Remember what you are speaks so loud I can't hear a word you say."

Amen, and amen!

    I don't really feel good about this. I agree with a lot of it, don't know about pot but I've heard that it makes you hungry...but I feel like he's blaming the victim. And it's both of their just is. All teens are hard to deal with. Maybe his mother didn't know what to do with him because she didn't want to bother with his smart mouth...when daddy knew what to do about it. Also, I have never been afraid of anyone in a "hoodie"..never. Now that's a fact.

    A quote from one of our biggest race-baiters, the Reverend Jesse Jackson:

    “There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life, than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery – and then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

  • tsmiths

    Trayvon Martin would be alive today if he had gone straight home after being challenged by Zimmerman. Martin had four minutes to make that decision. Instead, he chose to attack Zimmerman and ended up dead. Trayvon Martin died because of his own bad choice.

    All the “politically correct babble” criticizing Zimmerman as spewed by the main stream media and professional bigots like Sharpton and Jackson does nothing more than divide people and stir up racial hatred.

    • darlingrats

      You are right, Obozo himself, Sharpton,Jackson and others, do nothing more than divide people and stir up racial hatred.His mother sent him to his father when he started getting out of control..NEITHER parent lived in that area But Zimmerman DID.Trayvon's parents got over 1 mil from the HOA even tho NEITHER lived in the area. AFTER the family got the mill, they said it's time to move on. Figures..they got money so they are happy. So why was he there? he didnt have friends there either. he also had in his possession 2 of the 3 ingredients to make "purple drank" which he said he did drink..skittles and arizona watermelon drink, the 3rd ingredient is Promethazine/Codeine cough syrup, the higher the mgs of the Promethazine/Codeine cough syrup, the worse the effects.sites like narconon and other websites talk about the effects that has on the body by going from the lowest amount of Promethazine/Codeine cough syrup to substantially high amounts. Martin even said Robitussin made kick ass purple drank/lean/ sizzurp.Threatening Zimmerman wont help any of this,all it's gonna do is fan the flames especially if anything does happen to Zimmerman. But then i think Obozo is looking for ANY excuse possible to REALLY flex his POTUS Muscle and wreak havock.Thank You for your words that EVERYONE NEEDS TO HEAR Pastor Hutcherson and BLESS YOU!

    Hey this pastor has a great message and it is for Whites as well as Blacks. This is one God fearing man. Thank you Pastor Hutcherson.

  • TLady62

    That's why it's time to ditch the self-professed "Leaders" and live like everyone else.

  • LittleRoot_48

    It is a shame that more blacks don't heed the words of this man like they do the phony reverends, Sharpton and Jackson.

  • Damon

    And that is the facts

  • Jeri Crouch

    Wasn't it Piers Morgan that when asked how do you deal with racism, he said, "Don't talk about it."?

    The truth is that you can fight fire with fire but you CAN NOT fight racism with racism.

    Trayvon vs Zimmerman has been proven over and over to be not about race but about Obama.

    All of the wrongs being brought to our attention coming out of the White House are no longer about anything but Obama. I'm too angry to be hurt or offended by all that is going on around us and sweeping our feet out from under us as though a tornado is the cause rather than the man pointing the finger from the White House.

    Thank you Pastor Hutcherson.... Thank you. ")

      Well done. N.C. Vail

    God bless this man.

    Great article and video.

    A wonderful, truthful testimony. Would that more blacks, and whites understood the world as this man does. In fact, if all blacks thought like this and whites abandoned their guilt complex that keeps blacks in a state of depenency, our racial problems would be on the path to resolution. I especially liked his statement that we're all the same color, just different shades. This is a true man of God who sees all people as God's creation. The trouble is that we are so caught up in our warped sense of reality that foments racial division, whether it comes from Barack Obama, Tavis Smiley, Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. Neither Sharpton nor Jackson has the moral rigt to put the title "Rev" in front of their names.
